Creating an Emotion Revolution in our Nation's Schools
Dr. Marc Brackett, Director
Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence/
Emotionally Intelligent Schools, L.L.C.
Sunday, September 25, 2016
1 – 2:30 p.m.
Emotions matter – and matter a great deal in school and everyday life. In this presentation, Dr. Marc Brackett will share the results of a large-scale survey – conducted in collaboration with Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation – that unpacked the emotional lives of our nation’s teens – from how they currently feel to how they feel in school. The associations between school-based experiences such as bullying and quality relationships and different emotions also will be presented.
Listen and hear about:
The role of emotions in schools;
The development of emotional intelligence among teens;
How schools can better support teens with the integration of evidence-based practices to enhance the emotional intelligence and school climate.
